Five years passed so far, and we have reached our goals. SampleMusicFestival has become the international venue for turntablism, finger drumming, and sample related music performance. With visitors from 15 different countries, we celebrated our 5th anniversary at the notorious halls of Cassiopeia Berlin. Besides high-quality showcases and workshops, we have presented some of the most forward-thinking projects of handmade sample-based music featuring f Datablism, Syntablism, and the Catalyst controller. In addition to that, we teamed up with Portablism Gear and organized the first Portablism Heavy Weight Championship earing great feedback.
Furthermore, we crowned the winners of the Clash of the Titans battle and Finger Drumming Competition which was powered by Native Instruments. We doubled the number of live views on our streams up to 16,000, which is a great success and underlines the relevance of our program. Thanks to all artists, sponsors, and visitors. Without your support, we would not be where we are today.
